Hundreds of families fled to Kabel trading centre for refuge as Lomoiwe and Kapchir Primary Schools were forced to close bringing the number of schools closed due to insecurity to 10.

Area Chief Patrick Chepsoi said that more than 70 armed rustlers drove the animals towards Pokot county and added that a woman and her 13-year-old son are missing.
